What do Volunteers help with?

Volunteers help in every area of the festival, assisting with vendor check-in, greeting festival guests, conducting crowd counts, working in the Green Car Show area, and helping with children's activities. They also assist with stage management, parking, signage, waste management, social media and more.

Volunteer shifts are three hours each and you can sign up for as many as you'd like, Thursday, April 25 - Sunday, April 28. Snacks, a t-shirt, and free smiles included.

Invite your friends to join you – all hands on deck!
